Tradition Five

pine is clouds 075



“Each group has

but one primary purpose

– to carry its message

to the alcoholic

who still suffers.”


Big Book p 564



We are not bankers, lawyers, real estate brokers

marriage counselors, psychiatrists, psychologist

or employment providers, we are drunks who

need each other to maintain our sobriety.

An AA meeting is not a group therapy session,

it is an exchange of ideas on how not to drink,

one day at a time.

We qualify ourselves, what it used to be like,

so that you can identify with us.

We tell you what happened,

where we reached our bottom and

how we found the rooms of AA.

We relate what it is like now and how AA

and a Higher Power, works in our group

to keep us all on the road to a happy destiny.

Today, join a group,

see how their primary purpose can serve you.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.


ME and the Boss


And, if no one has told you yet today,

God loves you and so do we.
